MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The high pressure dome heating the region for yet another day will stay with the us for the weekend ahead, likely keeping Father's Day hot and humid. The high should maintain a stronger grip on the region than in previous days, helping to limit the thunderstorm activity expected. But even with that in mind, the immense heat provided by the high pressure cell can help the storms that do form to intensify to strong or even severe.
Friday overnight/ Saturday early morning lows will fall into the lower to mid 70s across coastal and inland communities. Daytime highs should heat up to the mid 90s inland with lower 90s across the coast. Some upper 90s and even 100s are possible into South Georgia with heat index values even higher! Rain coverage for the weekend will be at around 20%. The humidity levels sparking the high heat index readings are staying high because of the consistent flow coming in from Gulf of Mexico.
Afterward, the work week will still likely see a hot pattern with highs in the mid to upper 90s and rain coverage at around 40% from Monday through Wednesday.
